This week we decided to take on an intern, not only because we hear a lot from our viewers how we should be bringing on help with the boat....and we had someone who wanted to see what it's like firsthand to build a boat.

So for the day, we welcomed Sophie of @RyanSophieSailing . If you've been following their videos as well (and you definitely should) you'll know that they're on the lookout to trade their current boat in for something newer. The question for them is do they buy new or build new?

We figured we would put her to the test to see if she has what it takes (both in skill and desire) to build a boat.

We put her through almost every task imaginable - sanding down fiberglass; filling spots with thickened resin; glassing (in easy spots AND hard); and then finally ended the day with fairing.

For a beginner, her skills were top notch - to the point we'll gladly welcome her back to help any day. But after we put her through all that work, will she ever want to do boat building again?

Take a look and see what it's like to come work on our build.
